Sweetheart Valentine’s Day Sugar Cookies Recipe


  • 1 cup unsalted butter at room temp
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Large bag of festive valentines day M&Ms { you will be rolling the cookies in this }



  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  • Mix together the butter, white & brown sugar
  • Add eggs and vanilla, mix until combined
  • Slowly add in the flour { one cup at a time } you may need to fold in with a spatula
  • Followed by salt, baking soda and then baking powder, mix until all is combined
  • Before you add your m&ms, let the dough firm up for about 2 hours at least, or over night.
  • Once your dough is ready, roll into a ball, aim for golf ball size, this will help your cookies to be alot bigger
  • Gently roll your cookies into the m&m mixture & once placed on cookie sheet add a few more to their tops!
  • Bake for 12-14 minutes, until slightly golden onthe bottom.
  • Remove from oven and let rest on the baking sheet

Tip: Letting dough sit in fridge does make a difference!
*You don’t need to roll the cookies in m&ms but I like how the m&ms look once the cookie is done baking
